This week Gotye announced that he would be making his debut on Saturday Night Live. Jack White also sat down with NME and spoke to them about what the possibilities are for a White Stripes reunion. Also, pop culture sensation Lana Del Rey performed on American Idol. Check all that and more below…
- Gotye Lands SNL: Gotye is one of the recent indie musicians to break out this year. His song “Somebody” featuring Kimbra, put him on the map. Now, Gotye has landed Saturday Night Live. He’ll be performing on April 14, right before he heads of to Coachella.
- White Stripes Reunion?: In a recent interview with NME, Jack White basically said that there’s no chance that he’ll ever reunite with Meg White, unless they went bankrupt. Sorry White Stripes fans (myself included).
- Dr. Dre To Produce Horror Film: Dr. Dre is producing a horror film. Yup, one of music’s original gangsters will be producing Thaw, about an ancient evil that emerges from the rapidly melting ice in Yukon. This isn’t Dr. Dre’s first film project, but we can’t help but ask ourselves, where on earth is Detox?
- Lana Del Rey on Idol: Lana Del Rey appeared on American Idol last week and her performance of “Video Games” aired yesterday night during the show. It seems like she’s getting more and more comfortable with performing on television. Check it out.
